Hive is the most safe shape, effectively connected structure and a place
where bees are born and bred. Hive Family Counseling Center seeks values
inspired by the shape and structure of hive, such as safety, connection
and growth.

Hive Family Counseling Center began in January 2016 by John Nam, a California licensed marriage
and family therapist, with the vision of ‘Restoring Families through Counseling and Therapy.’


FAther, Mother, I, Love, You

  • We will try to do our best for our each client to experience satisfaction in safe and comfortable atmosphere.

Child/Adolescent Counseling

Child and Adolescent Counseling may differ from counseling for adults, and will depend on the child or the adolescent’s age, specific difficulties and their development. Different approaches may be used to encourage them to be able to express their difficulties, such as play(ex. sandbox play, board games) and art(ex. drawing, painting), which help to express themselves including their own feelings. These methods give the counselor a great insight into the unconscious mind of the child. Adolescents may prefer talking therapy, or a mixture of both, and the counseling approach will depend on a particular individual. Counseling may be provided to a child or to an adolescent individually, or it may be provided to a child or an adolescent as part of a family counseling.

Adult Individual Counseling

Individual counseling is a process through which a client works one-on-one with a counselor—in a safe, confidential and caring environment—to explore feelings, behaviors, beliefs or work through influential memories or identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
Our clients seek individual counseling for a wide variety of reasons, from dealing with depression, anxiety or coping with major life challenges or childhood trauma. A client and therapist may work together for as few as five or eight sessions or as long as several years, depending on the client’s unique needs and personal goals for therapy.

Couple Counseling

Couples counseling is a form of therapy that looks to resolve issues within an intimate relationship and improve communication.
A counselor who offers this form of therapy should have the relevant training to help them work with the dynamics of a couple.
All HFCC’s counselors are experienced couples counselors, especially they are trained and certified for Imago Relationship Therapy.
Imago Relationship Therapy is an effective and compassionate approach to connecting the distance between couple. The principles and practices of the Therapy were first introduced by Harville Hendrix, PhD, in his best-seller “Getting the Love You Want,” have touched the lives of over 100,000 people in about 30 countries.

Family Counseling

Family therapy is a type of counseling that helps family members to resolve conflicts and to improve communication. It may include all family members or just those able or willing to participate. Family therapy can help you improve troubled relationships with your spouse, children, or other family members. You may also address specific issues such as marital or financial problems, conflict between parents and children, or the impact of substance abuse or a mental illness on the entire family.
